RUEIL-MALMAISON, FRANCE--(Marketwire - October 7, 2010) -  Vision Solutions, Inc., the world's leading provider of information availability software and services for Windows, Linux, IBM Power Systems and Cloud Computing markets, today announced that it will be exhibiting at VMworld Europe in Copenhagen on 12th-14th October 2010. On display will be the Vision Solutions products that support the latest version of the VMware® vSphere® platform, Double-Take® Move and Double-Take® Availability. These products provide simplified migration and protection for vSphere environments, as well as allowing organisations to easily provision non-production environments for testing of disaster recovery plans.

Vision Solutions will be present at the VMworld Europe event on stand #11. Ian Masters, UK Sales Director at Vision Solutions is also speaking at the conference on 13th October. His session, 'Virtualisation, the Cloud and Disaster Recovery', will cover how new technologies such as the cloud offer new strategic opportunities for businesses as well as looking at some of the challenges faced, including migration, backup and disaster recovery for virtualised, cloud and mixed IT estates.

About Double-Take Move
Vision Solutions' Double-Take Move allows administrators and systems integrators to accelerate adoption of the VMware vSphere platform without end user interruption or downtime. Double-Take Move carries out migrations easily and quickly from a physical or virtual environment into a vSphere platform. 

  • Double-Take Move allows administrators to perform heterogeneous storage and hardware migrations between different vendors and platforms.
  • With Double-Take Move, end users can access production applications right up until the moment administrators perform the final cutover of the workload, which minimises downtime to minutes.
  • Double-Take Move uses purpose built auto-provisioning technology to make creating new virtual machines simple and easy.

About Double-Take Availability
Double-Take Availability
provides high availability and disaster recovery for both virtual and physical environments. The Double-Take Availability Virtual Recovery Assistant feature is a useful tool in both disaster recovery testing and real-life recovery scenarios.

  • In the event of a disaster, the product's built in Virtual Recovery Assistant feature allows administrators to seamlessly recover virtual machines onto bare metal servers.
  • For advanced disaster recovery testing and mock recovery scenarios, the Virtual Recovery Assistant allows administrators to provision additional virtual machines in non-production environments to test their infrastructure resilience plans.
  • Double-Take Availability supports heterogeneous storage infrastructure across primary and disaster recovery facilities so that administrators can mix and match storage platforms to ensure their disaster recovery spending fits with their available budgets.

"With Double-Take Availability, we can replicate data and workloads in real-time between our main data centre and our recovery site. By using virtualisation at our secondary site, we can run multiple workloads per server and increase our efficiency. Double-Take Availability supports both physical and virtual server instances, so it is a very cost-effective way to provide Infinis with the level of protection that is required," said Steve Merrell, Head of Systems at renewable energy company Infinis.

Olivier Cohen, EMEA Sales Director at Vision Solutions commented, "Our relationship with VMware is based on providing solutions that are affordable, easy to implement and deliver the highest level of disaster recovery and application availability for virtualised environments. Along with our long-standing leadership in the disaster recovery and data replication markets, we are proud to say that our products allow customers to implement virtual servers faster than anyone else on the market."
